Beyond the Classroom presents "Prosecutor" about the International Criminal Court

Description:
Luis Moreno-Ocampo has one of the toughest jobs in the world. He is the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the worlds first permanent court to try individuals for massive crimes like genocide. To victims of atrocities, he is a hero. To his critics, he is threatening stability and peace. The worlds most powerful nations, including the United States, refuse to join the Court. A fascinating story,PROSECUTOR follows every move of this flawed but charismatic champion of human rights as the ICC begins its very first trials. Moreno-Ocampo travels to the worlds most violent countries to investigate and prosecute those accused of brutal crimes against humanity. The prosecutor boldly issues a warrant for the arrest of sitting head of state for war crimes, Sudanese President Al-Bashir. PROSECUTOR offers front-row seats to the historic events that will determine whether the ICC is a groundbreaking new weapon for global justice or just an idealistic, powerless dream. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 23, 2012
